If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions.

My 10 year old niece was diagnosed with Juvenile Arthritis at age 8. Her left ankle was the primary source of pain and inflammation.
After exploratory surgery confirming Juvenile Arthritis, she was given medication that included steroids(she put on 40 pounds)---- there was no improvement. She was getting worse and limping when walking; she could no longer participate in school gym or even run around in the yard; nor could she sleep through the night because of the aches and pain. Her mother took her off of the medication and hoped that she would outgrow Juvenile Arthritis when she got older as the doctors said 'could happen'.
Then they heard about Young Living Oils. Lavender and Peppermint were applied to her left ankle every night at bedtime, starting in July. She began to sleep through the night and the pain and throbbing began subsiding.
In August, she could walk without limping and her dad (a non-believer) noticed that her left ankle was no longer turned inward and swollen. He kept asking what medications was she on and was told "Nothing but the oils"!
In September, she started actively participating in gym class at school again. She also decided to put Lavender on the many stretch marks across her thighs (caused by the weight gain).
In October, after her visit to her Juvenile Arthritis doctor(last one was in June), her parents were informed that there was very little--"if any"-- evidence of Juvenile Arthritis in her blood work.
Now, in November, she has 'NO' stretch marks; her exploratory incision scar has gone down from 1/4" wide to the size of a pencil line; and she is preparing to run for cross-country competition (as her older brothers do).
She continues to do her nightly ritual (she says just because she loves them!) and now her brothers(16 & 18 years old) are taking 'her' oils for their sore muscles, scrapes, bruises, colds and congestion.
We are so grateful for Young Living essential oils. What a blessing!
